About this initiative
In response to the veterinary workforce shortage, the AVA has removed the charges associated with the advertisement of both veterinary and veterinary nurse locum positions on the Career Connect website. The intention of this initiative is to assist with the connection of interested veterinarians and veterinary nurses with practices advertising locum positions - providing much-needed relief for overworked veterinary staff.
In addition to this initiative, the AVA is also providing the Return to Work program complimentary for AVA members to assist with the veterinary workforce shortage. Visit this page for more information about Return to Work.
